I have a very small bridal party...I have a maid of honor and 1 bridesmaid (my 16 year old daughter). My mom called me a little upset the other day because my MOH has not responded to her calls and she has offered to help with my bridal shower. The thing is...my MOH is unemployed and dealing with some personal issues. My bridesmaid (my daughter) is a student and obviously unemployed. My parents are paying for our reception in Cancun and I do not want to be a burden on anyone. I honestly do not care if I have a shower but I do not want to come off as ungrateful. Also, we are getting down to the wire as far as time. There are only 10 weekends before the wedding and I will also be busy with my daughter & her basketball tournaments. I feel bad because my mom feels terrible that she cannot afford to pay for the entire shower as she feels I deserve one. Typically the bridal party throws the shower but I am anything but typical. We intend on having a cookout (AHR) when we return for those that could not make it so I may just advise that I do not want a shower???
Does anyone have any suggestions?
